Campaign launched to help safeguard Hull’s most vulnerable children

Hull City Council, with the support of the NSPCC, have launched a campaign to encourage residents to share their concerns about potentially vulnerable children and young people in their community.

The campaign ‘Worried about a child in your neighbourhood?’ will raise awareness of how members of the public can play their part and highlight the ways they can contact the council or NSPCC about a child who may potentially be at risk.

If residents are worried about the welfare of a child or young person then they can share the information confidentially by contacting Hull City Council via their website (opens in a new tab) or calling 01482 300 300, alternatively by contacting the NSPCC via nspcc.org.uk (opens in a new tab) or 0808 800 5000.

Coronavirus: safeguarding and child protection 

Helping you support children during the COVID-19 pandemic 

Safeguarding and child protection are as important now as they ever have been. But with schools closed and social distancing measures in place across the UK, we all need to think about the way we keep children safe during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). 

The NSPCC have put together a list of services and resources to support your work with children, young people and their families during this challenging period. 

Things are changing rapidly at the moment so they’ll be updating and adding to this information regularly.
